It’s not a secret that I love King of the Hill. One of my co-workers asked me to make this piece for him, and I was more than happy to oblige. I’ve already made three other King of the Hill pieces (1, 2, 3), and really all I needed was an excuse to make another one.
He is, of course, daydreaming of propane in the embroidery. Because of the propane tank I decided to have him wearing his Strickland work shirt, which I used a blue fabric for. I used the same fabric to wrap the hoop.
Cartoon characters, and pop culture references in general, are some of my favorite things to embroider. Keep them coming, guys!

You guys, this is the third King of the Hill embroidery I’ve done. I think this means I like King of the Hill too much. This time around I did a Hank Hill piece.
I cut up one of Bryan’s old white t-shirts to use as Hank’s shirt. I think I’m going to try a few more pieces adding in different fabrics like this, I was pretty happy with the result. I didn’t realize that the shirt had a stain on it though- there is a little mark on his right shoulder that drives me crazy.
I’m probably going to redo this with a shirt that isn’t stained, and on a different color fabric.
